  2. In both cases I would let the 5 die
     
  3. Sudden braking may cause a derailment So: I kill all 6 for being too stupid to look out for oncoming trains.
     
  4. The author mentions at the end, you could have jumped in front of the train instead of pushing an innocent bystander.

    Not an option. I'm not jumping in front of a train and I ain't pushing anyone in front of a train, But what I would do is start a "5 dopes" scholarship fund in their memory.

    This whole experiement is outdated and not relevant to the 21 st century. No diversity among the 5 dopes and contestant number one, everyone is white. This is no fun. We need to mix it up.

    For example.. 5 black men walking on the tracks, on the other track is Justin Beiber. White girl can't decide and kills herself.
